Church Signs: Ideas to Help Improve the Visitor Experience

Churches of all denominations are popping up everywhere, but they don’t always occupy traditional church buildings. These days, churches can be found in shopping centers, schools, barns, old factories and more. So how do you ensure that regular attendees and visitors can find their way and be informed no matter what type of building you use for worship? With well-planned church signs of course! Here are several ideas to help improve the experience for your visitors.

Wayfinding signs should be placed high so they can be easily viewed in crowded areas.

If you’ve been selected to plan and implement signage throughout your church, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve been helping churches design, fabricate and install custom signage for many years and have learned a thing or two in the process. Here are some of the most common signs we recommend:

Logo Signs – Of course, it’s important to identify your church with beautiful exterior and interior logo signage. Custom logo signs help people find your church as well as establish your brand. These signs can be fabricated from a variety of materials, such as acrylic, brushed metal, wood, steel, PVC plastics, vinyl and more!

Vinyl Wall Graphics & Murals – Most churches typically have a lot of blank walls, so why not use that space to display information such as your church’s mission, vision and other important information? Vinyl can be installed quickly and is much less expensive than traditional permanent signage. Wall vinyl can also be very impactful!

Have a message that needs to be shared? Wall vinyl is the way to go!

Window Graphics – If your church has windows at the entrance, window graphics are an excellent way to identify your church as well as include days and times of worship, contact information and more. If you have interior windows, vinyl can also be used for room identification, privacy and decoration.

Wayfinding Signage – Probably one of the most important types of signage in a church is wayfinding (or directional) signage. These signs are especially helpful to guide visitors and regular attendees in larger church buildings or campuses. We offer many different types of wayfinding signage, including: 

  • Vinyl Wall Graphics
  • Suspended Signs
  • Blade Signs
  • Floor Graphics
  • Exterior Post and Panel Signs
  • And more!

Portable Displays & Banners – Many churches meet in temporary spaces, such as schools or other large buildings. This requires temporary signage that’s quick and easy to setup and tear down. Traditional banners, retractable banners, and popup displays are a great option! These also offer a nice way to advertise events that are happening at a church.

As you can see, there are so many options when it comes to church signage. It’s important to make your signs pleasing to the eye, but especially focus on the experience that your first-time visitors will have. If they can find their way easily and access important information, you’ve done your job!
